Shreveport Native’s Body Found in Red River

Release Date: 07/19/2011

 

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division agents are investigating a boating crash incident that left one person injured and another deceased in the Red River in Bossier Parish on July 19.

Kimberly Webb, 48, of Shreveport, was found about 9 a.m. on July 19 in the Red River, and he was pronounced dead on the scene by the Bossier Parish Coroner’s Office.  Teresa Revia, 51, of Shreveport, was taken to the hospital with major injuries.

Webb and Revia launched a 15 foot boat from the Teague Parkway boat launch around midnight to go fishing with Webb as the operator of the boat.  After they finished fishing, they were returning to the launch when they possibly struck an object in the river throwing Webb from the boat.  Revia stayed in the un-operated boat until it collided with the east bank of the river causing it to run aground.

LDWF is the lead investigating agency to determine the official cause of the incident.  LDWF believes at this time that Webb and Revia were wearing life jackets and alcohol use is not suspected.
